OSLO -- ExxonMobil has extended its maintenance and modification contract with Aker Solutions until December 2011.

The original three-year contract was signed in December 1998 and included seven, two-year options. ExxonMobil has exercised the fifth option under the contract.

Aker Solutions’ scope of work involves engineering design studies, engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) contracts as well as offshore support.

“This [extension] enables us to continue executing EPCI projects and providing support to all of ExxonMobil's offshore assets in the Norwegian North Sea,” says Stian Vemmestad, president of maintenance, modifications, and operations for Aker Solutions. “We are now heading into very interesting phases, including preparation for the 2010 shutdown and the field life extension plans for Balder.”
